Das Mitglied hat: -den besten Hund (masculine) -die beste Katze (feminine) -das beste Pferd (neuter) -die besten Hunde (plural)

As your link points out, the ending pattern is -en,-e,-e,-en. However these special kinds of adjectives (superlatives) differ from normal adjectives in that they cannot be used as predicates:

correct: Der Hund ist gut. incorrect: Der Hund ist besten/best. correct: Der Hund ist am besten.
